Event details

An online talk by Andrew Woods about the Anglo-Saxon coins found at Rendlesham in Suffolk.

Part of a series of 10 online talks Behind the Scenes: Analysing Anglo-Saxon Rendlesham.

An early East Anglian royal settlement has been identified at Rendlesham in south-east Suffolk. For the first time, the experts will be sharing their results to tell us even more about Rendlesham and its connections with the Anglo-Saxon world.

The Anglo-Saxon coins found at Rendlesham are unparalleled elsewhere in England. They show somewhere at the forefront of coinage, a place of wealth and power. Some coins came from across Europe, while others were likely made in Rendlesham. This talk will use Early Medieval coins to explore the networks and wealth that make Rendlesham such an unusual and important site.

Meet the experts and get your questions ready to ask them during the live Q&A.

Please Note: The event will be held live online on 2 October at 2pm UK time. It will be recorded and the video will be available to view on our website at a later date after the event has ended.
